About

The Center for Disruptive Musculoskeletal Innovations (CDMI) represents an exciting and novel integration of injury prevention, healthcare economics, biomedical science, and clinical medicine.  Industry advisors collaborate with university researchers to target novel strategies and technologies that will decrease injuries, lower healthcare costs of injuries that do occur, and improve the management and life of patients with musculoskeletal disease.
